RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Hobey Baker Award finalist was heavily pursued by a number of teams, but ultimately decided to sign with the Wild and remain in the state in which he played all three years of his collegiate career. Reilly, a two-time All-American, was stellar during his time at the University of Minnesota, leading the team with 42 points in 39 games as a junior. He has an excellent chance of making the Wild's roster out of camp.
A late growth spurt put Reilly on the prospect map, and the University of Minnesota blueliner now finds himself mentioned as a preseason contender for the Hobey Baker Award, awarded to the top NCAA hockey player. He's still a long way from the NHL, but Reilly has the skills to someday be an effective two-way defenseman for Columbus.
Offensively-talented blue line prospect Reilly will hone his game at the college level for the next few years.
